Visitors and newcomers interested in membership at First Church are encouraged to participate in one of our “Journey to Membership” series! Youâ€™ll get acquainted with other First Church newcomers and meet our ministers, Drew Kennedy and Dena McPhetres.Â Youâ€™ll learn about Unitarian Universalist beliefs, spirituality, and history, our Religious Education and other First Church programs, and the meaning of membership.
Participation in a Journey to Membership series is required for membership in the First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee. Youâ€™ll have the opportunity to sign the Membership Book at the last session.
This fall, â€œJourney to Membershipâ€ will begin on Saturday, October 26 from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. The series will conclude on Tuesday, October 29 from 6:00-8:30 p.m. On Saturday, we will provide coffee and juice in the morning and lunch around noon. We will share dinner at the beginning of the Tuesday session. We hope this Saturday/Tuesday series is convenient for First Church friends who have had a hard time scheduling 4 Tuesdays evenings in a row.
There is a $15 fee for the series. Childcare is available for the Tuesday session only. For more information or to register, please stop at the Member Services Table or contact Kathy Porter at the church.
